Event description

Description

Frank Proto and Tim Berens are an exceptional bass and guitar duo. Both expert in classical and jazz idioms as performers and composers, the duo performs music that is stylistically diverse.

Frank Proto has had an extraordinarily varied musical career. He is a composer who has created a diverse body of quintessentially American music. He played double bass and served as Composer-in-Residence with the Cincinnati Symphony for 30 years, in Broadway show orchestras, and in numerous jazz clubs. He played, as one of the original members, in the American Symphony Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski and served as solo bassist with the Robert Shaw Chorale. Comfortable in many styles, both as composer and as performer, he has achieved a genuine and unselfconscious synthesis of what are, for most musicians, two incompatible worlds of sound in jazz and classical music. His recent DVD “Bridges – Eddie Daniels plays the music of Frank Proto,” nominated for a Grammy Award is a perfect example of how these two worlds can meld with the right combination of performers and repertoire.

Tim Berens is a guitarist, an orchestrator, and a conductor. Tim’s orchestral guitar work has included performances on more than 40 CDs, national and international tours, nationally broadcast television programs, a performance at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and 7 performances at Carnegie Hall in New York. Tim is the guitarist for the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, and he has performed with more than 20 other orchestras including the National Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Hong Kong Philharmonic. A versatile musician, Tim performs on the mandolin, banjo, and bouzouki in addition to the electric, classical, and steel string acoustic guitars. An accomplished jazz guitarist, Tim released Two Sessions with bassist/composer Frank Proto in 2012, Live at Sips Cafe in 2005, Nortonomy in 2001, and Another Rhumba for Armando in 1999 for Red Mark Records. He has performed regularly in jazz clubs for many years.
